  1. Task Bar not responding and Windows not shutting down due to "Task Host Window:...


    Dear Microsoft community,


    Yesterday 30/01/2020 I encountered the same problem people have suffered from after the 1709 Update. My Task bar is not responding at all and this does not change when restarting the explorer process. Additionally when trying to shut down the computer the process is interupted by Task Host Window telling me that background tasks are being stopped. One of those always includes the following in brackets:

    \Microsoft\Windows\Plug and Play\Device Install Reboot Required

    If I do wait it out, the computer simply goes back to the login screen and doesn't shut down.


    I have tried every suggestion given in other threads including a disk clean up as well as trying to access the settings panel in order to change the automated login settings, which didn't work out since I couldn't access the settings panel, but mostly suffer from the fact that I cannot even open the settings as my computer doesn't respond to either the windows key or the settings menu inside the windows explorer. I can access task manager and via new task the run command, hence I can access cmd.exe and regedit. Neither has helped me so far in solving the problem. I also cannot access the safe mode as the computer simply doesn't respond anymore once I get to the final restart option in Troubleshooting. I can click restart and it does appear to shut down, but then just doesn't show anything while continuing to run. Even pressing F4-F6 for safe mode on the blackscreen doesn't help, thus I can't tell whether or not this problem persists in safe mode.


    I am currently on

    Windows version - 1903 Build 18362.592

    64-bit version


    Thank you for your help.

    :)

    Throttlestop obsidian not showing readouts in task bar

    Hello

    I had the previous version of throttlestop installed on a surface pro running windows 10 and it was working beautifully but now I am having trouble getting throttlestop to show temp/cpu reporting in the windows task bar. I have 'Task Bar' checked in the main window but still nothing appears. The check boxes within Options for Notification Area such as CPU Temp and CPU Mhz do not respond when clicked. Am i missing something/is there something else I need to do in order to get throttlestop obsidian to report to the task bar?


    Thanks so much!

  3. Windows 10 Defender - How to make it default to task bar?

    Using Windows 10 and currently I am using Defender for anti virus. For whatever reason Windows Defender does not show up in the task bar unless I search for the program or right click and scan a file/folder. Is there a way to force Defender to show up in the task bar at start up?
